MSH Foundation focuses on spreading awareness about mental illness and on fighting against the stigma surrounding it. We will also emotionally support and care for the sufferers, and will guide them towards mental wellness, helping them live a happy and purposeful life.
5th Anniversary celebration
Our mission is to transform mental health stigma and raise awareness. Mindfulness,
Intergenerational Care and Feeding the Homeless are also key themes in our community
Our foundation provides support to those in need.
MSH Foundation provides welfare support to those in need, especially the elder members of the communities. We promote positive ageing through the themes ‘Design your legacy’ and ‘Gift of growing old.’ The idea is to learn from each other where the elder people share their life experiences with youngsters and then, acquire digital knowledge from young members of the communities.
MSH Foundation understands the needs of the members of the communities and connects with them to provide social support, build trust, support members who live together without any issues and to encourage people to join the community.
For so many Decades in our society, mental health and mental illness were silent topics, little spoken about & little understood.
Now we have increasing recognition of the vital importance of mental and physical health in people of every age and to our communities for wider societal happiness and wealth.

”If someone has a broken leg, his visible pain provokes sympathy; if he has a broken mind, his invisible pain triggers incomprehension. Mental health remains an issue that is not only difficult to understand, but also comes with colossal stigma. If one has a mental disability one is often shunned and labeled as “mad”, “lunatic” or worse. If it is known that one has been to a psychiatrist, one is sometimes looked upon with fear or confusion. A mental health patient is painted with a brush of ignorance and treated with contempt, when in fact he or she needs medical assistance, help, and understanding. Mental illness is also a complicated disability to gauge, and people can, as far as appearances go, seem perfectly healthy and happy while confronting painful inner battles.
Monumental work is required to reduce our social bias and restore the right to life with dignity, which is essential and fundamental to each person. This is no small matter. In India, for instance, we continue to live in a society where family members are ridiculed for receiving or seeking treatment and help; where communities reject the notion of depression and mental illnesses, glorifying their ignorance rather than sensitizing their actions. It is difficult to change public opinion and outlook all at once, but it falls on our shoulders as concerned human beings to come together and work towards the common goal of developing an atmosphere where matters of mental health are both received and treated in an inclusive, holistic and supportive manner. It is in that spirit that I welcome the efforts of the Manju Shahul-Hameed Foundation in de-stigmatising mental illness and offering resources towards raising awareness on this critical issue among local communities within Croydon and the United Kingdom.”
